Wendy: Web Wizard!

Wendy has been helping us out since April 2009, when she participated in the Community Mapping Course-I. She's been learning Drupal fast and a lot of the posts in the Resources & Projects are by her (transferring material from the old Common Ground website to the original Drupal v.6 Community Mapping website in 2009, and once again migrating content from the v.6 website to v.7 Drupal in 2016). We are very lucky to have Wendy volunteering with us. If you want to learn some Drupal - talk to Wendy!

Volunteering

Mapping is a great way to build community. Your community! And the Mapping Centre is a great place to volunteer your time and effort to keep communities on the path towards sustainability. You'll learn lots and take away skills and a network that you'll use long after you're done at UVic.

Interns

Internships

The CMC is designed to match the training and mentoring needs (and passions) of students with the community need for research. Through our model, interns develop employable skills and competencies for economic and social development and the digital economy, while community groups and civic governments advance their planning and policy processes, increase citizen engagement, empowerment and capacity towards more sustainable, prosperous and thriving communities.
